The Touchless Remote: Turning Couch Potatoes into Wizards

Touchless Remote

While Apple and every other gadget producing company on the planet is busy developing and incorporating touchscreens into their products, Bang & Olufsen are leap frogging to the next sci-fi inspired innovation: touchless gadgets!

The Touchless is a prototype remote that will not only control the television, stereo, and dvd player — but all the appliances in your kitchen, too.

From T3:

Designed primarily for kitchen use, the TouchLess can control the cooker, washing machine and boil a kettle from the comfort of your armchair.

A remote control requiring no physical contact to operate… I’m pretty sure I’ll become a maniacal wizard obsessed with my own power with this thing. Picture Saruman doing dishes, making coffee, channel surfing, and cooking dinner with the wave of his hand. Yeah. That’ll be me.
